          mosconi did his in a public exhibition and was done on one try.

          setting up a scenario and playing hours on end for weeks or more to do the run on your own set up table is something entirely different although a tremendous feat.

          similar to trying to hit the longest home run. and setting it up on your home field and hitting for the fence hundreds or more times until you hit it as far and claiming a new record.
          Mosconi did thousands of exhibitions. He only ran 526 at one of them. And it was on an 8’ table. Yes, I know many times Mosconi simply quit his exhibition runs when he was satisfied for the spectators. So he probably *could have* had many other high or higher runs had he tried more often. But he didn’t, so he only left us with that one documented run of 526.

          Schmidt did his differently, but there are two reasons that for me his run has as much or more validity than Mosconi’s — one being the obvious that Schmidt’s was on a 9’ table, as opposed to Mosconi’s being on an 8’ table. To my knowledge 8’ tables have NEVER been considered to meet professional standard for straight pool, so that is a pretty serious issue right off the bat. And the other being that it was recorded on video. I know there was a signed affidavit for Mosconi — but who knows if there were any little odd quirks like a miscount in the racks, or a non-called ball dropping instead of the intended ball, or a foul, etc; at least with Schmidt we should all be able to watch it for ourselves and make our own judgment. Frankly I trust my own eyes better than 50 or so fanboy signatures on an affidavit.

              There was just a big thread on azbilliards on how incredibly rare 100 ball runners are.
              John beats the record by that much on tougher equipment, and people can still find a way to play down the accomplishment!

              Way to go, John! I'm amazed. I wonder if I'll see that record broken in my lifetime.

                    This is really amazing. Apparently broke an unconfirmed record of Eufamia (spelling) running 625 as well. It amazes me all the detractors, I think some pool players are so accustomed to complaining they don't know how to enjoy something great.

                        It does seem that way, but it's really only a few grumps among a host of impressed and congratulatory people.

                              Although he has been posting attempts on you tube so far for free, I'll bet there might be a pay for view on this one. .
